My last snack I have eaten was a mooncake. You can have it only once a year. Due to the harvest, Chinese people celebrate Mid-Autumn festival according to the Luna calendar. There was an ancient story. Where one couple wanted to get an immorality, and a man had got an eleksil. He hid the bottle in the house and went out for some reason. The woman, maybe she was not acknowledged well, found a bottle and drank all. Finally she became invisible and flew to the sky. When the master came back to his house he understood the absence of his wife. He couldn't deal with his grief. Every evening he came out with hope to see his wife again, and once he saw a beautiful full moon. He regarded it as his wife. So, every year, when the full charming Moon raises up people tribute it with spcial attributes which included mooncakes. I really enjoy eating this kind of dessert especially when it has a romantic background.

The last snack I ate was a mooncake. You can have it only once a year. Due to the harvest, Chinese people celebrate the Mid-Autumn Destival according to the lunar calendar. There is an ancient story. A couple wanted to become immortal, and the man obtained an elixir. He hid the bottle in the house and went out for some reason. The woman found a bottle and drank it all. Consequently, she became invisible and flew in the sky. When he came back to the house, he understood the absence of his wife. He couldn't deal with his grief. Every evening he came out hoping to see his wife again, and one evening he saw a beautiful full moon. He thought it looked like his wife. So, every year, when the full charming Moon raises up people pay their respects to it with special gifts including mooncakes. I really enjoy eating this kind of dessert especially when there is a romantic story behind it.
What do you mean by “maybe she was not acknowledged well”? Interesting story. Thanks for sharing!
